Cellular operators, netbook manufacturers, and, of course, techies, have been eagerly awaiting a hands-on experience with Nokia's new netbook, the Booklet 3G. Reiter's got his hands on one, and tells you whether it's worth the wait.

I have no idea how I could have made such a moronic mistake because I KNOW the correct specs. What I should have said is the Booklet's hard disk is 120 GB. That's less than many other netbooks, which include 160 GB hard drives.
I have another, previously-recorded version of the Booklet demo -- where I noted the correct hard disk specs -- and I'll see if it's possible to replace this version. Sorry.

What did AT&T think was going to happen with the iPhone pricing plan, and are they shoveling something else at us now that we're hooked?
What does a $0.62 refund check from a service provider mean? It could mean that, unlike Google, Amazon, and Apple, telcos aren't ready to use what they know about their customers to sell better, more personalized services.
